for us. the mobility plans that local authorities are now obliged to develop, and the hearings that are organized because of that, are almost always concerning parking places. we have now a program where we are having one less car parking space. in the streets, you see, there is one car less because now bicycles can ride their bikes, but the comments are not as enthusiastic. you will have to be from the cycling movement to be happy about that. it is a hard struggle. >> you, sir? >> with health insurance, i think people are realizing it is an idea whose time has come. maybe we're trying to make the same thing with cycling. in the united states, many people, especially in big cities, are much more resistant to the idea, including individual motorists, not just businesses afraid of profit. i am wondering, i am not sure how much a european have met with people who are very resistant, thinking it is like socialism, people just want to take over the streets and will not be room for cars and we will go slower and lose jobs. have you been able to convince people? what kind of arguments

? >> sadly britain has relied on the government since the end of the second world war. in fact, you gave us some of the money. but we did pay it all back. we just finished paying a couple years back. we always relied on the government and the entrepreneurs have to work between the cracks really. but this story about the u.s. becoming like europe is nonsense. >> it is nonsense? >> complete. >> there is a place for the government, and that's to protect the consumerses. i believe in less government and more individual responsibility. do i believe we are turning into europe? no. the american dream is alive and the bottom line is this -- in 2012 we can vote obama out and in november elections we can vote republicans in, and then we will create a better america. >> i hope the republicans have something. >> they have outrage. >> let's give it a shot. let's get europe to put together a huge fund so they can pay for our defense, and then we can sit around pontificating how cool we are and how much the russians want to let us heat our homes in the winter time. >> europe never asked you to protect the
, yeah, but all these lanes are needed for car traffic. i'll tell you, if you use this traffic model, you should realize that the capacity of your system is not determined by the amount of lanes and the stretches of roads but by the capacity of intersections and you realize that the capacity of these intersections are a lot lower than any capacity of lanes that are on the stretches of roads. so it's only a parking place for cars on to the next traffic light or intersection. so it's only convincing the people to realize that there will be hardly any sacrifice if there will be face given over to cyclists. one thing and that's also the problem with being in the downturn because there is also safe by numbers. in the netherlands, cycling is inherently more safe than in the u.s.a. because all car drivers are also cyclists. 60% of the people in the netherlands cycle at least three times a week. 80% at least once a week. so all the car drivers are also cyclists and they know as they turn right that there is an 80% chance that they will cut off a cyclist if they don't look. so there is also safety
